about where is president obama's plan? >> sean: hold on a second. >> he's the one that won. >> sean: you're making my point. where is the conversation about cutting, dir dick durbin, harry reid? >> the president sold a lie. the lie is you can have these goodies and it will be paid for if you tax the rich for more. that's economic nonsense. i want to give you one number. the unfunded liability of medicare, one entitlement program, is $42 trillion. that's money that we've got to shell out in the future, which we do not have. are you going to tell me we could tax the rich? >> i am not telling you, but this is what i'm saying, that the tax reform and entitlement reform should and could be a bigger part of this conversation, however to focus on the republicans now at this point i think is chasing a rabbit down a hole. it is not the republicans' responsibility to come up with a plan. president obama won fair and square. he's the won who needs to persuade america that the policy is right. >> sean: we have the exact same situation as we had before. all this money was spent, all the arguing over

defections on the republican side. tom cole is a savvy survivor. he said we have to go with the obama plan. basically what he understands, that i think the speaker maybe understands is sometimes in politics as in life have you to do something you don't want to do. what the republicans don't want to do is raise revenues from the wealthy, but they have to and they must and they will. >> but congressman, the last time i looked, the president had won the election. and exit polling showed more people agreed with his approach on taxes than even voted for him. now, i understand that speaker boehner doesn't like the fact that he lost and we offer him our condolences every day. isn't it time he responded to what voters want? this is what voters have said. >> well, exactly. i think eventually he'll get there because the alternative in stone walling to hold onto those tax cuts for the wealthy is christmastime will be a $2200 tax bill. that's a disaster for them. it will hurt the economy, as the speaker was saying but that will be on them. so, he's got an out. the challenge, since he has a caucus that
to move forward in the economy into an obama administration's plan for the future of america. >> well, douglas brinkley, james peterson, thank you for your time tonight. i think it's a healthy thing. i'm very firm and clear on my positions but i also think it's very important until a divided country that we show none of it is personal and that the american people are far more important than any of our partisan views. that's why it was good the president met even today with ceos who had opposed him, marriott, state farm, caterpillar, at&t. let's have a tone of not having the koucountry at each other's throats but let's be firm. we'll be right back after this.

. and then it's back to the campaign trail for the president on friday as barack obama attempts to sell his budget plan while speaking at a toy factory outside of philadelphia. yesterday chuck todd asked jay carney if the president was running out the clock ahead of the last minute deal. >> isn't everybody just killing time until the deadline comes? can seems like everybody is just -- >> they're not killing time to me, chuck. >> until the final week and the jet fumes, people get out of school and the holidays come and then everybody will actually hammer it out? >> look, here's a fact. the president has on on the table a proposal that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion. that is substance. so he has not waited for people to start smelling the jet fumes at national airport. he has actively put forward a plan. >> top republicans are saying president obama should be spending less time politicking out in the public and more time working behind closed doors in washington to try to hammer out a deal. >> rather than sitting down with lawmakers of both parties and working out an agreement, he's back
in january, they ran against president obama's plan. so perhaps he thinks he needs to do a little of that. but remember, this is also from a political pr standpoint, remember that's what i said i would do it as well, that he's got the republicans on the ropes and they know it. and republicans may seem a little in disarray, and trial for good reason. they did lose and there is party splits. but i think that the conversation is healthy and people are staking out some territory. i really think that the republicans are on the right side of good policy. they just don't necessarily have the best politics. >> brian: my thought is if you go on the road with a plan, you have something to talk about. basically what he's going on the road is, ask we're going to raise tax rates. he's going to keep saying that. i was encouraged that senator dick durbin, number two ranking democrat, said we can't just up taxes on the rich and expect the budget to balance. he does think everything should be on the table. i would build off statements like that and i want to hear that. >> and also if i were the rip, i wou

at an event in fort meyers and said that president obama's economic stimulus plan was going to be good for florida and good for the country. a few months after that, he announced instead of running for governor, he was going to make a bid for the senate. at the time the idea was to keep a republican in that senate seat. charlie crist was popular so he presumably could do that. he could hold that seat for the party. he jumped into the republican primary only to find he was running there against florida house speaker marco rubio, who was an anti-stimulus tea party candidate. mario rubio and his supporters wailed away on charlie crist for the hugging and for the stimulus. and it worked. crist dropped out rather than get wol lopped. he stayed in the race as an independent, but he got run over by rubio and rubio took the seat. that's how charlie crist got pergeed from the republican party. this was how his demise was explained. the hug that doomed crist's senate bid. charlie crist, you embraced the democrat. get out of the party, you are done. that's how the story has been told. maybe there
that there are no face-to-face negotiations. republican leaders and president obama plan to take their arguments to the american people and directly and go on what many are calling a road show. republicans are planning to schedule event with small business owners across the country, arguing that if you did not extend tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, those making more than $250,000, it will hurt small businesses. is that true? guest: hurt is a subject of word. it will effect small businesses. it will reduce the after-tax increase -- income of 3% of small businesses. whether that hurts them is another question. it could mean between $5,000 and $20,000 less. owners might still be taking home $110,000 in income, and there is some money left over to reinvest. on the one hand, it could mean they could not hire an employee, by a new oven if they are a restaurant, or refurbish the lobby, but on the other hand you could say that they already make a large income. it is true that 3% will be effected. will it hurt them, yes, to some degree, but is that bad for the country? that is more a question of p

it really be that president obama does not plan to compromise at all? >> well what the president is trying to do and you heard it today, you mentioned it in his speech. what the president is trying to do is set aside the issues of taxes and the looming spending cuts and redo the negotiation that they had in the summer and say, don't bring in your healthcare reform stuff, don't bring in your medicare, don't bring in social security, focus exclusively on the question of whether or not you will raise taxes in order to offset these automatic cuts. the white house is trying to portray this as a one-for-one deal that they are going to renegotiate what they already negotiated in august. they say if republicans want less spending cuts on the defense side they better be willing to give up on the tax side and have tax increases. i think they are perfectly willing as it stands now to take it off the cliff and let the taxes go into effect, because if the republicans won't give them what they want on a tax rate increase for top earners they think they will get them later once people are outraged that t

. we are awaiting remarks from president obama. he is pushing his plan to try to avoid the year-end fiscal cliff. this speech comes ahead of a meeting between the president and business leaders later today discussing actions the white house says are aimed at growing the economy and finding a quote, balanced approach to reducing the nation's deficit. let's bring in our panel. mary katharine ham editor-at-large of hot air.com and fox news contributor. peter mirijanian former advisor to the clinton-gore and gore-lieberman campaigns. when the president arrives at the white house to speak, he will have people behind him, ordinary americans who reached out to the white house and want their $2,000 middle class tax cut preserved. republicans are saying this is essentially a campaign stunt, a campaign appearance kind of event of the he won the election. he should get on the business of governing. what do you say? >> well, one quick observation, jon. i think what you're seeing, what i think is interesting the first social media presidency. this administration using technology and using so
the irony here is that obama and boehner still have no plans to meet themselves face-to-face. the two did meet before congress' thanksgiving recess along with the other two three members of the house and the senate. they had plans to meet again this week but still nothing is scheduled. it is not a great sign and shows that the two groups are practically incapable of working together. the last time obama and boehner tried putting together a big deal over the budget, that completely collapsed and this time around, the american people are getting less and less optimistic that congress will be able to reach a deal before the tax hikes and spending cuts kick in just 33 days. it is going to look bad for congress if they cannot get this done and some republicans are saying it's time to give in. politico's also reporting oklahoma representative tom cole told his g.o.p. colleagues yesterday to move forward with the president's he plan to extend the tax breaks for everyone except the top 2%. cole said that he does not agree with raisin

for president obama. he is a mideast analyst. both supporters and opponents are planning more giant protests on friday as well as sad. what's your assessment of the situation and the back and forth between the two sides? >> well, i think what we're seeing is is that this is a new egypt. anybody who thought that president morsi could come in and act like president mubarak and could rule as opposed to govern, there's no doubt that's not the case. there's no doubt he miscalculated. he thought in the aftermath of brokering a ceasefire between israel and hamas, that gave him a new standing internationally, gave him new stature in the region, and it did and he could somehow use that to convert it into new power within egypt himself. what he's finding is in fact the new egypt is an egypt where people feel that their voices matter and that there's not going to be a new ruler. there's going to need to be a president who governs and he who governs is going to have to govern recognizing and respecting checks and balances. >> certainly democracy is a very slow process and certainly for a country that's

negotiations to playing out in public. today the president laid out the plan to step the looming tax hike in a public push that seemed like a campaign event. president obama meeting with a group of what he described as middle class americans, and repeated the argument for raising taxes on families earning more than $250,000, a plan which republicans so far reject. the president said the re-election shows a majority of americans support his approach. >> not just democrats but also a lot of republicans and a lot of independents agreed we should have a balanced approach to deficit reduction that doesn't hurt the economy or hurt middle class families. glad to see if you have been reading the pains more and more republicans in congress are agreeing with this idea we should have a balanced approach. >>shepard: he referenced some in the g.o.p. who signal they could be willing to play bull. the republican leadership still is insisting they will not consider tax hikes. >> republicans are willing to put revenue on the table the it is time for the president and democrats to get serious on the spendi
obama and republican leaders plan to take their stake in this, their arguments, to the american people directly and they plan to go on what many are calling a road show. republicans plan to schedule events with small business owners across the country. they're arguing if you don't extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, those making more than $250,000, that it will hurt small businesses. is that true? guest: hurt is a very subjective word. so it will affect about 3% of small businesses. and i've been looking into this and it will in fact, you know, reduce the after-tax income about 3% of small businesses. whether that hurts them, whether that's fair is another question. it could also mean about $5,000 to $10,000 less -- between $5,000 and $20,000 less if you want to use a wider range of income for a business. now the owners of the small business still might be taking home $110,000, $10,000 a year in income and there's still money that's left over. now on the one hand, $10,000 less in income might mean they can't hire an employee next year, it might mean they can't buy an oven
announced that president obama will be hitting the road in an effort to win public support for his plan. he is meeting with business leaders friday he is going to for a factory in pennsylvania. the campaign style trip is in a tent to build pressure on congress through public support rather than the behind closed doors support used in last summer's and that talk. that is not sitting well with the senate minority leader. >> there is some concern i read this morning that the president plans to hit the road next week to drum up support for his own personal approach to be short and long term fiscal challenges we face. in other words rather than sitting down with lawmakers of both parties in working out an agreement he is back on the campaign trail. presumably with the same old talk that we are all quite familiar with. we already know that the president is a good campaigner, we congratulate him on his reelection. we don't know is if he has leadership qualities necessary to read is lead his party to a bipartisan agreement on big issues. like we currently face. >> there's a new poll is a 67 percent
tax reform. there's pressure on obama to do corporate fundamental tax form, not individual. and the prime is he going to take corporate rates down but his plans are to increase the rates they 119 subchapter s. small businesses pay, and just one -- in addition to we're having this conversation there are five tax increases that are not being discussed. they are the five obamacare tax increases that start january 1. they are on atr.org. but you're rather substantial but it's hundreds of millions of dollars start kicking in on the american people january 1, thanks to obamacare. when you talk about, i think the correlation of forces between the two sides is different than obama sees. obama goes i won the reelection. i get to do whatever i want, let's go. which was his attitude four years ago and he ran his car right into the bridge abutment and five much. took 70% approval rating down to the 50, never got back. gave himself republican house in 2010 because he ran and spent all that money thinking that the american people had signed off on that because they voted for him and didn

. but it is not what the speaker of the house plans to do. there is no plan right now for this vote to take place on the house floor. i will point out, though, that this is exactly what president obama himself said he would like to see house republicans do. i asked him about it at the press conference, the president had last week or was it two weeks ago, he said, look, house republicans should just, well, let him say it. here you go. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this. i hope republicans in the house come on board too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on. and that's to keep middle class taxes low. and i'll bring everyone in to sign it right away so we can give folks some certainty before the holiday season. >> the white house point of view and which they feel is reflected in representative cole's position there is that it is very clear that they're in the going to -- neither side is going to let taxes go up on all americans. and so why no
